Spread the word about DCD

We want every professional dancer in the UK to be able to access DCD’s support.

So many dancers hear about the support available simply by word of mouth – this is why you spreading the word about DCD could help make all the difference to another dancer’s life.

Here’s how you can help:

Share Your Story

Inspire other dancers by sharing your experience of career transition and how DCD helped you. Send us a short video clip of you talking or one or two lines about your experience with some images of you dancing or in your new profession that we can share.

Share your story and experience of career transition by speaking at one of our workshops or events – hearing first hand about career transition from dancers is an incredibly powerful way to inspire other dancers to reach out to DCD.

Email hanna@thedcd.org.uk if this is something you’d like to do or with your video clip/text/images.
